Having been around during the Oil Crisis and stagflation of the 1980's, I recognize some familiar patterns and what could turn out to be the most serious threat to the RP Revolution so far. This threat could come in the form of an "engineered apathy" brought about by lower gas prices, a better economy and a lack of interest in all things RP.

During the oil crisis of the 1980's, it was widely believed that oil was surely "running out" to be gone forever. However, within a few months, oil was abundant, gas prices started coming down, and everyone forgot about all those hard economic times.

From what I have learned in the last 6 months of participating in the RP movement, the "powers that be", have the power to manipulate both the world's currency and oil supply. Furthermore, they are masters at throttling the economic resources to manipulate not only the economies of the world - but also the attitude of its people.

If economic times start getting better over the next few months, I fear that a dangerous apathy could start to creep into the RP movement. If this happens, the revolution could start to loose steam and give up all its hard earned gains and awareness. What a waste for this pattern to be repeated over and over and over again. Never forget folks - These people are smart - very, very smart!

These people have been manipulating the boom and bust

cylce for many decades now. With so many resources, don't underestimate

It's unlikely.

It's unlikely that the economy can rebound enough to create voter apathy again. The economy is still sinking. I predict by the end of the year, oil prices will peak higher than ever before, due to the inflationary sinking dollar.

Giant corporations have already been carrying many of their

American employees for a year now... that can't go on forever... and as the unemployment rate rises, the tax base shrinks the system can only print more money and inflation will surge... they may be able to hide the facts for 6 months... but the problem is only going to get worse...

There are reports

around all the areas that I live that there is a gas shortage. A newscaster was showing gas stations with plastic bags covering the pumps on the local news this morning.We could have bigger problems than we thought. You know what they say, history always repeats itself

Last comment of the night....

We need all the time we can get. Organization - even loose decentralized - is not our strong point.

One of the biggest material obstacles to this campaign's success is money.

If the markets and economy run smoothly great. We have more time to stockpile cash to run news campaigns.

We will probably find success with home delivered news and educational materials.
The next step is to keep building the local meetings. But train leaders to keep them crisp. So often the local meetings turn into conspiracy theory jaw jacking. It gets out of hand and off topic.

Focused formats. Action oriented results. Pressure on Washington and grassroots support for local candidates at every level.

Patriots have to take the time to learn how to leverage their income. People are shackled to jobs that don't give them a lot of free time or excess cash.

An average person can earn a month's pay in one day of trading the markets.

I am working on a format to help people do just that. It's a common thing to take $5,000 or $10,000 a day out of the markets in one day.

It's not rocket science. It's as simple as clicking a mouse.

Imagine if we had 10,000 people generating $2,000 a week (one day's activity) for campaign support. That's $20,000,000 a week. The rest of their time (6 days/wk) could be spent maintaining their families and volunteering.

With this kind of leverage we can build tremendous infrastructure.

Remember the $80,000,000 a month is just seed money. Donations from new comers would be generated using that seed money.

We need to master numbers.
We need to master public speaking teams.
We need to master candidate training and development.

All much more do-able with abundant time and money.

That's it Loser, Do your job ProspectorSam

It's people like you that I sift out like poop out of a catbox.

It amazes me that people who are struggling always have the answers.NOT

It's people like you that give me pause from going more public. I don't need the adolescent behavior.

And it's people like you that trigger sentiments of "Vuck 'em. They know it all. Don't help them."

For your information, I do work with the few DP who have contacted me and asked for guidance.

The difference between me and EVERY other trading 'teacher' is I don't guess. Every trade I take is profitable...every one.

Can you say that? Do you know anyone who can say that?

And I don't sell anything. I look for write-offs.

So just know that YOUR attitude is the reason I don't go full out. You have no clue.

What I do is unbelievable.

I turned off my contact tab because of people like you. If I want to mentor someone I choose THEM.

I have friends, relatives and neighbors who sit in front of their computers for 3 hours, execute trades I call out over the phone and they make more than what they need for a whole month. And they are never at risk.

You have no idea who you just replied to Daddy. This is hilarious...I see your words Daddy and would love to see it work...just show us how is what Prospector was saying.

I can guarantee you that you know nothing about Prospector. The day that you head a whole state campaign for Ron Paul or any other presidential candidate...well then you might be able to sling some mud that sticks at someone like Prospector.

I'm not obsessed with our freedom movement because of high gasoline prices or a poor economy. I'm in it for freedom and I won't stop spreading the message to everyone I know and meet until we live in a free country.

Do you know someone who cares a lot about Israel? Send them this link that explains why Ron Paul's message is better for Israel, America, and the world. www.AmericansForIsrael.com

I appreciate your position

It's the fence sitters I worry about.


The biggest threat to the Revolution is: It will be almost impossible to co-ordinate and organize any type of movement/change from a FEMA camp.

We need, at the very least, local honest officials to be in office to stave off these whackos. We need Ron Paul republicans in office, any office.

Well they really want people to work their guts out their

whole lives, so putting everyone in FEMA camps will be a problem.

OMG $3.00 gas?!!

I'm not giving up the

I'm not giving up the Revolution, not now, nor never. Ron Paul has fought for our cause during more than 30 years, playing with the masters and in many cases beating them badly in their game (like '96 when he ended up winning a massive win against a Democrat-turned Republican backed by the Newocons and their cronies). He has shown us that he's not only a great person, but also a great politician. He really cares about the country. He has the vision of a present-day Founding Father that I highly look up to with dignity and pride. Apathy is like a cuss word for me. That's why you can vote for third parties, independents or, if you're not happy with these choices, even a good old write-in is valid. I could've easily paid attention to what the MSM says but I knew in January 2005 that something was wrong with the system. Almost 4 years later, I'm proud to say that I'm wide awake and won't allow anybody or anything to deny me to show my true colors, which are freedom and peace. I'm sure that many of us who've been here long enough on board won't take the highway. Dr. Paul has the road map, we should be able to follow him in this fighting journey. Always remember that the role of a patriot is two-sided: at the beginning, you're ridiculed and ignored but when things play out you're loved and respected. We have our hearts in the right place.

The economy is going to get much worse.

They control what the call GODD - Gold, Oil, Drugs & Dollar. Don't underestimate how the combination can be manipulated.


I may be fairly new to RON PAUL but I have been fighting these battles for yeaars & most of my life. 1949 BD. I could see things eroding well before I heard of RON. The police state is alive here . I'll get no time for apethy.



NOT IN MY BACKYARD ... i work for the revolution 24/7 365 ... thinkin about running for office when i hit the right age

All paper money eventually returns to its real intrinsic value, zero. - Voltaire

Go Dude - It's going to be largely up to your

generation. I can safely say the folks here at the Daily are behind you 100%

You might be right

for some of the folks.

The rest of us still see war, police state, gov't bail-outs, inflation, SPP, NAFTA, NATO, WTO, and all the other obstacles to freedom.

Yes, some will go away from our movement when economics improve a little....But I don't they they will improve much, or for long.

Couldn't agree more.

I've written here on other topics saying pretty much the same thing. Gas is $3.40-3.50 and everyone breathes a sigh of relief.


Once the heat is turned down, even just a little, Joe Sixpack returns to the widescreen with a cold one and life goes back to normal.

The dollar is useless. Our debt is in the hundreds of trillions of dollars. Gold and silver are being manipulated. The stock market is like a skittish horse. Every week we lose one or two banks. We have Obama and McCain debating such controversial issues as lipstick and pigs. We're on the verge of war with Russia and Iran and Pakistan....

Then someone throws something shiny in the room and they sit staring at it like drooling idiots.

God help us all.

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

I may not know the truth, but I know when I'm being lied to...

We are smarter then they! Even if the gas prices turn down more we still have the "War(s) ....the "Fed" ...."funny money"......losing liberties and on and on.

We're gonna kick butt, I just know it!

I hope you are right my friend,

for if they pull it off again, they will repeat it over, and over and over again. I am only afraid that it will be harder to get people's attention in what "appears" to be better economic times.
